Help me explain edges to my buddy

I'm trying to get my buddy into my league, and he has skated before, but it was just pick up hockey in high school. Basically he can go forward and stop by spinning in a sharp circle.

I tried showing him the motions of going backwards and he couldn't match it, but once I explained to push off the inside edge he got it like it was nothing.

Unfortunately I'm not too "skate smart" I guess, and I can't really describe how he should be using his edges for crossovers, backward cross overs, hockey stops, and stopping while skating backwards. Any help?
